Default 2015 canards.. Need advice !

I did some modifications today.. I don't know if it'll turn out good or not but I gave it a chance since i have he necessary tools to do so, so why not ? I don't know if it'll work correctly or if it has any advantages

I am planning to shave the putter edges but this will what it'll look like, after I'm done I'll be making it in carbon fiber, but what are your guys thoughts ? Negative and positive doesn't matter!

I tried to make it flow with the curves of the bumper, it was extremely hard to try because there is only one body line on the side,

if you guys want to see more check out my Instagram @bobssecrtsn

I like it, I think it has potential in CF. How do you think you'll be mounting them? I'd recommend a thin strip of 1/8" 3M VHB tape directly onto the bumper, it should hold up well with weather exposure and be removable with just some Isopropyl if you get sick of them.

Also, nice reef tank setup! Creeped your photo-bucket a bit haha.

From the pictures it doesn't look like the leading edge of the vertical section of the canard is tall enough, so it appears that they're much wider and flatter. I think they have some really good potential; CF, FRP, even painted metal could look pretty great.

Not that you asked, but for the final mounting solution definitely go with L brackets, they'll be able to support the extra downforce on the front bumper and distribute it properly.


Picture for reference of shape (triangle) for the vertical section of the canard.

I think your modifications suit well to your car's overall appearance. How long do you think will it take for you to have it completed? I'm curious how it will look like after everything's done.

Packaging tape....duhhh I like the way they look. But you should carry them all the way to the back of the bumper like the Voltex ones.

That'd bot a bad idea.. But I was going for double side tape!! Jk I installed some L brackets onto the canards last night with some 3/16 rivets, 3 on each canard, bolts/nuts on the bumper with that being said do you think they can hold the downforce? I made it fo to the back but it looked so funky it wasn't a nice from the side.

Double Bubble is better.

Whoever said mount with tape should get a slap...lol

I like how where it's going, definitely take Voltex's design in consideration like others have mentioned, mainly taller lead and longer tail.
I like how you have it go further in the front bumper but not exceeding the foglight piece, good work.

GL! Let me know how it turns out, definitely interested if you go into the production with the right design.

looks good, i wouldnt enlarge the upturned end. the voltex has more of an aerofoil section and round-profiled leading edge for downforce production and surely was put through cfd programs, w/o that you could be creating even more drag and no more downforce.

still looks good on car, so id keep it as is - maybe try to put some curve on the leading edge to flatten it more...but if its pure looks, do as you will
